With only ‘one chance at life,’ BCC student shines

 BOLIVIA — Brunswick Community College sophomore Drake Harper has leaped over obstacles his entire life. A car crash that nearly took his life would be no different.

After enrolling at BCC during the fall of 2013, Harper quickly adjusted to college life and found his niche on campus when he was elected student government president. Despite some early struggles socially, his life turned upside down on a rain-soaked highway near Whiteville on Jan. 11, 2014.
